Midweek Weather Briefing: Remaining chilly through late-week, rainfall chances increase this weekend

Good Wednesday to everyone…the latest surge of cold, arctic air has moved into the region. If you are going out the door first thing this morning its  on the frigid side with temperatures in the 20’s.

 

For today expect a lot of sunshine and with light southwest winds,  high’s may get into the 40’s. Tonight will again feature clear and calm weather with temps dropping down into the 20’s and 30’s.

The next in a series of clipper-type systems will slide to our north on Thursday,  this will bring an increase of clouds on Thursday and temporarily spike afternoon highs close to the 50’s mark. The impact of that clipper will be seen more on Friday as temps will  be knocked down once again, struggling to reach the low 40’s to end the work week.

 

The weekend weather currently looks to be a 50/50 forecast. Saturday appears to be nice and seasonably cool with 40’s/50’s and 20’s at night common, then on Sunday a return of moisture to the region as southern stream energy will slide through the region. Showers are likely to move in Sunday afternoon and last through the evening.

 Right now rainfall amounts don’t look to heavy right now with amounts in the range of (.10 - .25). These showers could linger into the Monday morning commute based on current model data.

 

Have a great day!
